Despite the embargo-free Comic Con screening, I've had to keep the lid on my option of the new Judge Dredd film.  It's out this Friday in the UK and I do wonder the point of embargoes for films like this. Its budget was only $40 million and everyone I know who has seen it either liked or loved it.  Why they'd want to prevent a couple weeks of positive buzz leading to the opening weekend is beyond me.

Anyway, it's very The Raid-ish, but it's also quite good, here's my full, spoiler-free review (londonfilmfanatiq.com).

I'm happy to say the real Judge Dredd has arrived in movie theaters, and he personally murders memories of Sylvester Stallone and Rob Schneider.

It's weird to say, but if I have any complaints, it's that Dredd 3D (SPOILERS) (backofthehead.com) could have been even more violent.

I wasn't planning on seeing it but you sold me with this. And short of having Karl Urban speak Indonesian it couldn't be more like The Raid. It's not as good IMO but given that The Raid is one of the finest action movies in the last decade that's hardly a criticism.

I thought they were going to go a bit overboard with the 3D-slo-mo footage early on, but thankfully they dialled that down a bit and the main bulk of the movie was a really fun ride.

Agreed. There isn't really a believable threat to Dredd until near the end of the movie, and when it comes some of the

Anyway, still a really good movie and I thought it made much better (or at least more consistent) use of 3D throughout the film than most things I've seen.

I thought it was faithful to the spirit of 2000AD Dredd.

And Lena Headey is becoming the go to lady for bad ass villainesses.

This was a lot more fun then last week's episode which I didn't mind since you almost need an episode like that just to shake things up. As someone who lost a family member in "Nam".
